Re: BREAKING NEWS: Steel Vengeance Crashes On Opening Day!

Not good, especially on it's opening day! I know it ran fast into the breaks but didn't expect that fast! Should shut up the people worrying about pacing in the 2nd half of the ride!

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - Invades Thorpe Park

^Somehow I doubt it'll have new trains. Perhaps may get a new covering for them though.


Think "Invading" is the correct term here, an invasion of something is rarely preferable. I'd have much rathered they left X as it was with sticking a dying IP on it.
